Taylor Hightower

I am currently a Senior majoring in Social Work and minoring in Psychology. I have always had a passion for people and a passion to help others so I feel as though I have found my calling. I would consider myself to be a very social and outgoing so being here at this campus as a Buckeye and being so active on campus has helped me in more ways than I ever thought possible. When I began my college career I was on my way to another university when I got some bad news that later turned out to be the best thing that could have happened. My life as a Buckeye has been such a blessing and an adventure. I have grown so much being at Ohio State and every year it is like I grow a little more and get even more opportunities. I have my job in admissions, I am the president of the Social Work Club, I have been on the homecoming court, I get to participate and be a part of events on campus and events in the community, I am a familiar face on campus to so many students, staff, and even faculty, I am also in a field placement working in an elementary school. I have gotten great opportunities and have had the chance to meet people that would not even be possible had I gone to another school. I am active on the Marion campus and even on the Columbus campus because I want to fully embrace being a Buckeye. I have been through so much and to be able to look back on all that I have accomplished as a student, an employee, and as a Buckeye, has been one of the biggest blessings greatest adventure in my life.

I am currently a Freshman here at The Ohio State University at Marion. I am a commuter from the Powell area. I graduated from Olentangy Liberty High School and had strong ties in varsity sports, academic achievement, and community involvement. I have found Ohio State Marion to be a seamless transition from high school to college because of the constant opportunity to get involved with the University as well as the community. I am currently pursuing a Bachelor's of Science Degree in Business Finance here at Ohio State with a minor in Public Policy. Every day I enjoy having the opportunity to further my education and learn what it means to be a Buckeye!
